I've recently been working with Ruby on side-passing, from the ground. She was trained that when you give her leg (even just one), it means to shoot forward. So I'm retraining her in that aspect. She moves without hesitation from my hand when I ask her to move away, but she doesn't always cross her feet over. Sometimes she 'shuffles' over. Is that a problem or will she learn to cross her legs over? I haven't even been working with her on this for a week, and she's already doing wonders. I know it takes time and I have plenty of time to work with her on but I was wondering if anyone ran into obstables with the horse not crossing over. I always praise her when she crosses over and I keep asking her to move away until she crosses over when she isn't.
